You know, the school is not in the best shape, but there is not enough money to fix all of it. Student who go there recieve a great education from wonderful teachers. I believe that it is a spectacular school and people should not talk about it in a bad way.

The building is falling apart. There are cracks in the walls, leaky ceilings and rats scampering around. The only thing left is locust infestation.

Wow, where to start?.. East Bridgewater is probably the worst school in our area. The teachers are nice, well most of them, and their academics are excellent. But, when it comes to the condition of the building, well, that's a lot different. The sports_are good. And they do an escellent job in preparing for MCAS, SATs, and college, but the school is in horrible condition!

I am currently attending East Bridgewater High School. Although this school has an excellent staff, academic programs, and great kids, the condition of the building is unbearable.

I attended this school back in the 80's and I know that I got out what I put into it. The teacher's where always there to help and the people that needed to be disiplined were. The parent involvement is getting better every year. People I talk to say how lucky I am that I went to such a good school. People say they hear great stories of the talented students coming from East Bridgewater. I still carry in my heart that East Bridgewater Viking Pride.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Massachusetts used the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) to test students in grades 3 though 8 and 10 in English language arts and math and in grades 5, 8, and 10 in science. The grade 10 MCAS is a high school graduation requirement. The MCAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Massachusetts. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
